White Lily

POETRY FORMAT, 20 Sep 2021

Dr Usha Roopnarain – TRANSCEND Media Service

While the snow white lily creates sheer delight,
with her innocence and her beauty so bright.
Without a thorn, without a stain,
Her simplistic beauty never in vain
The dew falls on her gentle beauty;
like a heavenly lesson for all hearts

Images of shade in the moonlight.
Melting grief and agony in sheer delight,
Remembering that in the valley
gives birth to a snow white lily,
pure white cups
so daintily scalloped like sleeves.
Symbols of purity, peace, humility
and all feminine tranquillity.


Dr Usha Roopnarain – Former parliamentarian in the National Assembly of South Africa, social activist and passionate about human rights and gender equality.
